I wonder what's the best i3 for overclocking?
How far were you able to push them? What cooling did you use? temps?

I never had much luck overclocking an I3 as most of the motherboards that I've used with an i3 are p67 based and they don't like much adjusted for the BCLK. I just wish there would have been an i3 K series and then they probably would have been epic.

I see..lacking a k series means they wont overclock much or at all. Even with the proper mother, right?

I guess i gotta go for an i5 for OC.
